I have an Ubuntu 14.04 server that has an Azure File Storage mount that auto mounts on boot via an FSTAb. To create this config, I followed the instructions in this article, and it works fine.
The issue I am having is after a while, intermittently, the mount drops. It doesn't seem to be at any particular set time, or event, the only way I know it is gone is user's complain they cannot upload files (the app persists the files on the Azure file mount). If I try to cd to the mount, my console just hangs.. if I try to do a df -h to list everything, the console also hangs. The only way I am able to get things back to normal is if I reboot the server, then everything is fine again.
I am suspicious that the connection to Azure's file storage may be intermittently dropping and coming back, but maybe the server is just not remounting when it is available again? I have a couple other (Windows) servers connected to the same file share and I do not experience this issue, so far. Has anyone else experienced this, and is there maybe a configuration that I can do to remount the share automatically if it becomes unavailable?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
